    I know about the requirement to arrive as a tourist. I am coming and may not leave, so I hate to lose money, should I. Can I buy a cheap ticket in and a full fare (class Y) out then cancel the out after I clear immigration?

    Buy a full fare ticket and cancel it afterwards. There is also a thread about renting tickets in the forum.

    the requirement is not a round trip ticket, the requirement is an onward ticket. you can buy a cheap ticket to anywhere outside the philippines and it will meet the requirement. if you look around, you can find an onward ticket for around $30-$50.

    Thank you Outcast. I know the drill. I am asking if I can save the $30-$50 by get a full fare return or onward ticket and cancel it. Will there be any problems with immigration should I decide to get a long time visa?

    There will be no problem with immigration if you don't use your onward ticket. I need to pay a fee to cancel my ticket one time but I'm not an expert on that area. Been here 8 years now on tourist visa happy with the 6 months extension instead of every 2. month, 2 times I forgot to renew with one month, just by bad memory, just pay a fine and all ok

    Buy a One-way-ticket you will use to get in, than buy here (bestonwartticket.com) a second "throw-away-ticket" to show at your check-in counter. These tickets are cheap (about 12 USD) and valid for 48 hours or longer, as needed. This are real bookings that are cancelled automatically after the said time. It is so easy: buy it - show it - forget it.
    Used that in 2018 and the throw-away-ticket was checked at Frankfurt Int. Airport/Germany. No problems, my reservation (a flight from Manila to Vietnam) was in their system and I had no problems with check-in.
    The philippine Immigration at arrival usually never asks for this ticket, but better to make sure to throw it away after you pass them.
